Nope. You usually can't with humble bundles (the very last one was an exeption)
And in any case, surely people can manage one dollar themselves for a bunch of commercial games? It's for a good cause. Keeping THQ afloat until they release CoH 2 and metro 2.

As per the 'extra games' policy you don't get extra coipes unless it's explicitly stated. The games are bundled in the single 'key' you get with HiB, therefore you don't get extra coipes.

Ya, I would be against tradable copies if you already own the game. If they allowed it, then the trading market would be flooded with: "[H] THQ Games [W] AC3, FC3, Skyrim, etc etc etc"

Hang on to it until they add the bonus games in week 2. I remember giving away by BTA key once and they added the bonus game to it for people that had BTA and I wanted the bonus game lol.

I'll be getting this bundle, even though I already own 4 of the titles (SR3, CoH). At the very least, I can save the SR3 code and use it for either trading or gifting later.

And can I safely assume that, like previous bundles, more games will be added at about the half-way point?

That seems odd. I think you might be mistaken. Wouldn't that have also excluded anyone who had used the key themselves as well? If they gave you a BTA key and you used it, then when they added the other games in week 2 no one would be able to get them. In my experience with HIB and many of the other bundles they usually give a second key for the games they add in week 2.

They do give a second key for the extra BTA purchases, however if Steam updated the registry of the 1st key to include a second game, everyone who used the 1st key would have their accounts updated with the new game as well.

Do you think they'll even add bonus games to this one?

Don't they just give you Steam keys? Why couldn't you just trade the keys rather than activating them?

Yes but you do not get a Steam key for each game.

1 STEAM Key, and a second STEAM Key for Saints Row 3, if you beat the average.
Most likely if a bonus game is added to the bundle, the game will automatically appear in your STEAM library [as has happened in the past], as opposed to giving us a 3rd STEAM key.

But yes, you can still give away the KEYs, but you will not get individual game codes.
